Prayers for Lent 2024 – Week 5 – Pledge

During Lent, All We Can are inviting people to ask the question ‘What is Mine to Do?’ Recognising that discerning where our voice and actions are most needed is a key part of justice-seeking. Each week, they are focussing on one word which represents one possible answer to that question. In Week 5 of Lent, that word is Pledge (particularly relating to legacies).

Everlasting Father,
Thank you that our short time on Earth is only a tiny part of your overarching act of redemption
We praise you that even though our time may be short, you still choose to meaningfully involve and include us in your mission – giving us freedom to discern your will, not passively receive it.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

We also thank you, Lord, that our part in your redemption story is not limited to the time we are alive. Help us to consider the many ways we can leave a legacy that serves your Kingdom. Whether that be through the effect our life of service has on others, or through what we pass on in our Will.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

We are sorry, Lord, when we are afflicted by short-termism. When we think only of the problems immediately in front of us, not recognising how we best plan for the future. Whether that be in our politics, in the church, or in our communities, help us pledge to serve you now and in the future.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.

As you have pledged your unfailing love to us, we pledge ourselves today and everyday to you in worship.
Teach me, O Lord
What is mine to do.
Amen.
